"gloves of nature's bliss lace leaves dance as butterflies parchment papers preen " Haiku quote by _ Chantelle Anne Cooke
have always thought of myself as a butterfly ... part of my life ... in a silky cocoon I thought the world to cruel to endure but one day I peaked out it was beautiful so I emerged ~ as a multi purple painted butterfly and fluttered away I loved the freedom to sail with the wind and the sweet nectar was divine ~ but sometimes the battle of life left my wings broken I existed but it was not easy to fly often, I would rest on a flower pondering I saw beauty everywhere and with courage fluttered away on my broken wings ~ but of course, I am not a real butterfly just a real girl with broken wings but with faith, courage and prayers I can soar ~ I pick up my pen and on parchment I write of all the wonderful things in this world of ours I see hummingbirds spin and butterflies flutter and death and sadness that needs expression I ponder the birds that I meet and wish I could fly with them ... that would be nice now, my wings have healed and "bliss" is mine ___________________________ January 14, 2022 Poetry/Free Verse/Whispering Butterfly Wings Copyright Protected, ID 01-1421-527-14 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, Whispering Wings sponsor, Chantelle Anne Cooke, Judged 01/14/2022 Second Place

Beautifully-expressed, Constance. I suspect that you are really very much like a butterfly emerging into a marvelous world made so much better by your presence.
